I know, I’m late to the party on this series. But gee am I glad I finally got around to them.
Lover Awakened is book 3 and it would be safe to say I loved the first 2 books in the series and this one did not disappoint either. If anything i would say this one was probably the one i enjoyed the most.
Zsadist (the scary vampire in the Brotherhood) finally finds something worth living for and it comes in the form of the lovely Bella.
The whole back story of Z as a blood slave was interesting and added that extra layer to the character. I liked that he wasn’t 2 dimensional in his hate and anger. I’ve noticed that all the ‘brothers’ have some sort of burden to carry with them, I suppose that’s why we love them as they have to overcome their sh$t in order to find their mate.
The other reason I loved this book was because I felt like other characters got a move along in the story too. Clearly they are all being set up for their own stories and I’m ok with that. I look forward to reading and learning more about John, V, Phury and of course Tohr.
I can see why this series sits on a lot of different top 100 lists. Its written well, the characters are developed well and truthful after 3 books I’ve started to really care for the characters. I want to see their happiness achieved. The last 2 pages of this book brought a smile to my face as it was not expected but very much welcomed as the ending.
I look forward to reading more of this series in the future and sharing more smiles and tears with these beloved characters. Thank you J.R. Ward for writing this series.
My rating is 5/5.
